So you broke a bone, now what?
Assuming you are diagnosed had surgery if needed and you arrived at the stage where it is just time to heal.
What can you do to improve healing?
Probably a lot more than you think. Below are some of the most important steps to promote healing.
- Get sufficient quality sleep (8-9) hours for me.
- Avoid alcohol.
- Eat quality foods organic vegetables and meats.
- Avoid blood sugar spikes.
- Get sufficient Vitamin D ideally from sun exposure without getting burnt.
- Eliminate antinutrients that impair the intake of calcium.
- Make sure you have plenty of calcium (I like to add hard grass-fed cheese)
- Include red light therapy (see my other post)
- Move the rest of your body to stimulate blood flow and avoid stagnant blood.
- Eat enough protein to support all repairs consider adding collagen to aid in rebuilding.
Don’t rush anything to let your body heal before you engage in any demanding exercise that strains the fracture.
It’s not worth suffering a setback that will just further delay healing.
